ManageBGL is the most sophisticated insulin dose calculator for Type 1 diabetics. With prediction of Hypos and BGLs 3 hours ahead, live sharing between school and home/work, intelligent tracking of insulin on board, automatic ISF, carbohydrate ratio and BGL targets, ManageBGL dramatically simplifies blood glucose management and lowers your HbA1C/A1C. Complete with a detailed log book, BGL, insulin and carb charts, ManageBGL is easier to use than a pump, and provide IMMEDIATE patient-specific coaching.
PREDICT HYPOS AND BGLs 3 HOURS AHEAD
Predict where your BGL will be 2-3 hours from now - with no more blood tests than you already do! See EXACTLY what effect your insulin is going to have.
Valuable trend information similar to that provided by a CGMS, warns of upcoming Hypos or Highs and telling you when to test for them. Identifies patterns of Highs and Lows.
Real time data available instantly online - using your PC, Mac, iPhone or any other Smart phone.
Temporary sharing with other carers (using EZShare code) - such as school, other parents, basketball coach, grandparents, etc for sleepovers etc.
Permanent sharing with your diabetes management team.
INSULIN ON BOARD (IOB) TRACKING
Eliminate stacking of insulin that can leads to hypos - ManageBGL tracks bolus/basal doses and factors IOB.
ManageBGL tracks your time zone so that IOB is correctly calculated.
AUTOMATIC TARGET AND RATIO SELECTION
ManageBGL supports an unlimited number of target blood glucose levels, insulin sensitivity factors (ISF) and carbohydrate ratios for different times of day.
ManageBGL's Bolus Wizard tells you how much insulin to have for the Carbs you eat, and to correct any high BGLs at the same time.
ManageBGL calculates meal and correction doses using a highly accurate, algorithmic approach rather than a simplistic table-based or 4-slot approach.
BASAL DOSE RECORDING AND MODELLING
ManageBGL can record your background insulin, and can model this so that you can see the effect
of missing a dose or overlapping doses.
VIRTUAL INSULIN PUMP / CGMS
ManageBGL delivers many of the benefits normally provided by an insulin pump and CGMS. Using ManageBGL it is possible to achieve control similar to that of a well set up pump. ManageBGL's coaching helps you refine your bolus/basal doses.
MODELLING OF FOOD GI FACTORS
ManageBGL models Low/Medium/High GI foods, and very high GI foods used for Hypos, and very low GI foods such as pizza.
FACTORS FOR EXERCISE, SICKNESS AND MORE
ManageBGL includes customizable factors for three levels of exercise, stress, sickness, pre-menstruation and alcohol.
Never be at a loss when eating out again! Online food list with 7000+ items from USDA food database.
LOG BOOK, STATS AND CHARTING
ManageBGL effectively replaces your log book, recording your ENTIRE history of BGLs, insulin and carbohydrate which can be shared live with your Health Care Professional for analysis. Log Hb/A1Cs, Blood Pressure, Stress, Exercise and Sickness, Notes etc.
Built-in charts and summary statistics help you assess your blood glucose control, identify trends and estimate your HbA1c/A1C.
- Import data from any meter, pump or CGMS
- Emergency contact details
- Integrated safety warnings and guidance
- mmol/L or mg/dL blood glucose units
- Metric or Imperial for weight/height
- Carbs in grams, portions, exchanges, BE, KE, CC
- % or mmol/mol HbA1c units
